SOU vs BUR Dream11: Southampton have made no secret their desire of going all the way in the FA Cup this season and after the Saints booked their place in the semi-finals with victory over Bournemouth a fortnight ago, the Premier League is currently listed second in their priorities. Burnley could be set to take advantage of this, especially when considering that Southampton have lost four of their last five league matches. The Clarets are unbeaten in their last three games at St Mary’s Stadium, winning twice and when taking into account that a win here would not only take them to within the cusp of safety, but also overtake Southampton in the process.
